Vintage Silver and Marcasite Oval Pendant and Brooch with Miniature
 
The vintage, oval, sterling silver pendant contains a miniature print (29mm x 23mm) of an 18th Century lady looking left, which has been highlighted by hand with watercolour. The print is behind glass in a rub-over setting which has a shaped rim. This is surrounded by a frame set with marcasite. The frame is fitted with a decorated, hinged bale, and it also has a needle and closure for it to be worn alternatively as a brooch. The backing to the miniature is a pierced, decorated piece of silver. The pendant is marked “925” on the needle. The rest of the frame has been tested to be sterling silver.
